Those of you who are new to prepping and survival is also intimidated by the amount of data out there. Would possibly come to the conclusion that it’s just too much and might even think about quitting.

That’s the last thing I need you to do so needed to put together a simple preppers list that anyone can use to start out prepping. If you’ve done nothing for your survival till these days, this is the right way begin.

Talk is cheap so let’s get down to business…

  • a good tent
  • a tarp, will be used along with a tent, just put it on the ground to avoid sleeping directly on the ground
  • a few emergency blankets
  1. Water
